Viscoelastic Polymer IS Cool, But Know Its Limitations…


Yes, visceoelastic polymer IS very cool and this disc-shaped “tripod” from MonsterPod is a hell of lot sexier than some “gellin” shoe insoles… But keep in mind that sometimes cool new materials aren’t everything they’re cracked up to be… When these things first came out, the Gadgeteer wrote a review on these things back in Feb of 2007 and, while the little sucker did stick to some surfaces, it turned out to be a bit difficult to clean:


This could have been due to the fact that they were sticking it onto trees, but it teaches us a good lesson: Make sure you experiment with your cool new material before incorporating it into your product.

Hopefully they’ve been able to fine-tune the stickiness since then so it cleans up better… If anyone out there has one of these things and has had a different experience, let me know.
